Inside PR 466: Email responsibly.
Net Neutrality. Canada's PMO fights back, against fake news. And we talk about how to be effective and responsible in our use of email. Gini Dietrich, Martin Waxman and Joseph Thornley are back for another episode of the Inside PR podcast. #IPRMustKnow Net Neutrality is worth fighting for New that the new FCC Chair, Ajit Pai, has begun to undermine net neutrality. If you value innovation. If you want to ensure that the Web stays open for new entrants. If you care about choice, pay attention. It's time to get ready to stand up again for net neutrality. Nipping fake news at the source We know that fake news usually is totally fabricated. But it also can be founded in erroneous reporting. So it was encouraging to see Kate Purchase, the Director of Communications to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, tackle Fox News head-on to obtain a correction to an item that was being distributed as fake news. In the wake of the Quebec City, several news organizations reported early information that one of the suspected shooters was Muslim. That was wrong. He was an innocent bystander. In fact, the victims were Muslim and the person arrested was not. Other news organizations quickly corrected the error. Fox did not. At least until Kate Purchase sent them a letter and publicly shamed them by publishing it on Twitter. Canadians are nice people. But we also can make a point when we need to. Huzzah Kate.
